Hendricks
« on: July 10, 2016, 10:36:31 am »
There are a lot of fighters who haven’t been the same since the UFC brought in the USADA to do the drug testing.  Hendricks is Exhibit #1.  He doesn’t have anything left, which is insane because he was a killer 2-3 years ago.  He was juiced to the gills.
If every black male 18-35 applied for a conceal & carry permit, and then joined the NRA in one day; there would be gun control laws in a second.

Yes he doped so much that he became a fish.

Good, that means I could pin him now.

What ever happened to Team Takedown?

They used to have a handful of studs when Hendricks was champ.  Last time I checked their website, they had just one fighter on their roster: Jared Rosholt.

Could part of Hendricks' slide be due to new coaches/training partners/camps?

He should retire before he gets badly hurt.

I think his slide started even before USADA ... when they stopped allowing IVs for weight cuts.  He cuts a lot of weight and needed those.

If they went old school and had same-day weigh ins, I doubt he would have ever been a welterweight.

He has a discipline problem. He let's himself go. A champion athlete should never look like he did between fights. He is like 5'8 and he walks around 220. He shouldn't be more than 195.

You're very gracious, I'd say 180-185. Even that's very big for a guy that height. Wrestlers build more muscle than boxer/strikers when they specify on that particular art and I think this hurts them in MMA as they have lots of lean tissue vs fat tissue. Years of wrestling build muscle, the scale does not differentiate between fat and muscle, a pound of muscle equals a pound of fat. This is especially true for guys who are heavily metamorphic like Hendricks. They need little or no resistance training, in reality they should train down and lose muscle (cut back/tailor lifting, directionally emphasize road work and training) and push skill development and the gas tank. To do this they need to train more, diet more strictly as they tend to gain size.

Just saw the 2013 bout with GSP.  The decision was a crock.
